Dancing Liberally - Steampunks Fighting Fascism
The Hindenburg blew up eighty-nine years ago this week. What does that have to do with liberalism? Well, it was a damned Nazi zeppelin, and progressives have always led the fight against fascism. What does it have to do with steampunk? Not a hell of a lot but zeppelins are kind of steampunky and I have to stretch a little bit for the theme. Anyway, come in your best steampunk/Victorian fashions for a chance to win lindens while you dance and discuss. DJ Rocky, the man who brought us the Steam Driven Yaks of the Apocalypse will be spinning the wax. But beware. Dick! Cheney will be behind the bar getting excited thinking about steam-powered piston strokes; he might shoot you in the face if you're not careful. Costumes not required.
